How To Use Eyelashes2018-06-28
If you’ve never been able to successfully apply false eyelashes, trust us—you’re not alone. With so many different brands and types of faux lashes available, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Learn a little lash lingo and technique below, and you’ll be able to apply any strip of falsies like a pro.
FULL STRIP LASHES
A full strip of lashes sits on a band that spans the entire length of your lash line. Before placing these on your lids, make sure they fit your eye shape first. If the strip is too long, simply trim any excess length at the outer edge with a pair of scissors. When you’re ready to go, line the band of your strip with lash glue. And place the center of the lash band at the center of your upper lash line first, then press down the corners. This will ensure that the band is not too close to the inner corner of your eye, causing irritation. If you have a hard time placing your lash band on your first attempt, try sweeping lash glue on your lid—instead of your false lashes—first. Then place the strip over the area you painted with adhesive.
Sometimes, more is merrier in the world of falsies. To double-up the drama, carefully stack the second pair of lashes on top of the first layer of lashes as close as possible to the lash band. This might take some practice—the more precise you are with your placement, the more polished the final look. To meld the two lash strips together, curl with an eyelash curler first, then apply a coat of mascara to connect the two pairs.
